Pitkin, David J. New York State legends, folklore and ghost stories Performing Arts- Storytelling
My most recent book (9/1/10) contains New England Ghost stories, but I have also written two books of Saratoga County tales as well as two books of NY State ghost stories. I speak to students in an intriguing way, not scary, and ask them to think about the issues involved. It is a new way to study history, as some of the people of the past seem to return from time to time. My storytelling has been an enjoyable part of my life for a dozen years.

Literature- Authors,
Performing Arts- Literary Artists
Award-winning author of 28 books, including NOTHING EVER HAPPENS ON 90TH STREET, used by many teachers to model writing, THE BOY WHO LOVED WORDS, winner of the 2006 Parents' Choice Award, and MAMA, I'LL GIVE YOU THE WORLD, winner of Oppenheim Platinum Award. I speak to children as fellow writers and share my passion for the power and pleasure of words and story. I urge children to turn their ideas, events and feelings into stories by observing carefully, using their imagination, and asking, what if? I show my messy notebooks and drafts to emphasize the value and pleasure of rewriting. With fun exercises and writing tips based on my many books, I aim to convince children that writing--whether fiction or nonfiction--is both rewarding and easy.
